Jan. 21, 1930. E. L. CARROLL PACKAGE Filed Aug. 8, 1927 anocuhw Edward; Carr-022 flmwup Patented Jan. 21, 1930 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE EDWARD L. CARROLL, 015 DETROIT, MICHIGAN, ASSIGNOR TO DUNLBAR D. MLCMEGHAN AND HAROLD E. YOUNG, BOTH OF DETROIT, MICHIGAN PACKAGE Application filed August 8, 1927. Serial No. 211,586.

This invention relates to packages and more particularly to a golf tee package.

The invention has as its primary object to provide a package capable of holding golf tees and the like which is simple in construction and which as a consequence may be economically manufactured so that the same may be distributed as an advertising novelty, the cover of the package providing ample space for the display of advertising matter.

The several objects, advantages and novel details of construction of my invention will be made more apparent as this description proceeds, especially when considered in connection with the accompanying drawings wherein Figure 1 is a perspective view of a package constructed in accordance with this invention.

Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view through the package.

Figure 3 is a transverse sectional view taken substantially on the plane indicated by line 3-3 in Figure 2, and

Figure t is an end elevational view of a modified form of construction.

While the cover of the package may be made of any desired material it is preferably made of cardboard, pasteboard or heavy paper and is formed of a strip 10 folded to form a back 11, a top 12, a front 13 and a bottom 14. The bottom is extended upwardly a short distance to form a flap 15 and when the package is closed the lower edge 16 of the front is inserted behind the upper edge of the flap 15 as most clearly shown in Figure 2.

Located within the cover is a member 17 formed with a plurality of apertures or pockets for receiving the golf tees or other articles. This member may be conveniently formed of a sheet of corrugated material and is secured within the cover by having its lower edge stapled between the flap 15 and back 11 by means of a staple 18. The corrugations of this corrugated sheet provide a plurality of pockets 19 into all or selected ones of which the golf tees T-may be inserted. The construction of tee holding member 17 is preferably such that a substantial portion of the stem of the golf tee is received therein.

Located on opposite sides of the member 17 and adjacent the openings of the pockets 19 are strips 20 of corrugated material. These strips ma be secured to the member 17 in any desire manner as, for instance, by gluing the same thereto and the corrugations thereof are preferably crushed sli htly, these strips acting as cushion members etween the front and back of the cover and the articles carried in the pockets 19. Thus as seen most clearly in Figure 2 these cushion strips space the rear and front walls 11 and 13 of the package from the golf tees and prevent the walls of the package from being pressed against the articles therein contained.

Obviously if the device is used as an advertising novelty, advertising matter may be printed, lithographed or otherwise suitably produced on the outsides of the packa e, particularly the front and rear thereof. he device lends itself to economical roduction in large quantities so that it woul be practical to distribute the package without cost as an advertising novelty.

In Figure 4 there is illustrated a slightly modified form of construction wherein a twin package is provided, the structure illustrated in Figures 1 to 3 being duplicated and arranged with their backs 11 secured together, as by gluing, stapling or the like. Vith such an arrangement the top 12 of one package will be diametrically opposed to the top of the other package.

While the details of construction of the device have been illustrated and described herein quite fully it will be apparent to those skilled in the art that minor changes may be resorted to without departing from the spirit and scope of this invention and to this end reservation is made to make such changes as may come within the purview of the accompanying claims.

What I claim as my invention is 1. In a package of golf tees, a cover, a pocketed member located within said cover and providing a plurality of uniformly spaced pockets, the golf tees being supported in said package with the stems thereof extending within said pockets and the heads thereof overlapping and arranged alternately in difl'erent planes whereby a plurality of golf tees may be compactly supported.

2. In a golf tee package, a cover, a member provided with a plurality of golf tee receivmg apertures, each adapted to receive the stem of a golf tee and to support the same, the distance between said apertures being less than the size of the olf tee heads, said golf tees'engagin in saidapertures to different depths where y to position the heads in staggered relation.

3. In a golf tee package, a cover, and an.

apertured member within said cover and connected thereto and providing a plurality of uniformly spaced apertures, the golf tees being supported in said package with the stems thereof extendin into said apertures, the heads of the gol tees successively engaging said member and one another to position the heads in different planes whereby a plurality of golf tees may be compactl supported.

In testimony whereof I a x my signature.
